Abstract

Camel bites are uncommon. They are more common during the rutting season where male camels become more aggressive. Herein, we report a unique case of a 25-year-old man who was repeatedly bitten to his face and neck by an aggressive camel that resulted in left eye evisceration, parotid duct, and facial nerve injury. To our knowledge, Globe rupture caused by a camel bite has not been previously reported.
